Department of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which views sound health and well being. Physiotherapists work for health promotion, preventive advise, treatment & rehabilitation.

It is the branch of medicine which relies more on physical treatment to improve the health condition rather than the use of drugs and medicine. Physiotherapists make their own clinical judgements and choice of treatments.
